it really do enough to change the dynamic in the race. next week it's paul ryan and joe biden. and then two more presidential debates. we'll watch the polls for see the impact. >> what was your verdict? we all have our own panel of strategists that will be coming up at 11:30 cet, that's 5:30 eastern. but we do want to hear from you, as well. what did you make of the debate and performance of each of the candidates? you can send us an e-mail at worldwide@cnbc.com. or via twitter, follow the sh show @cnbcwex. or tweet me directly. several of you already writing with your thoughts. @beccymeehan. let me know what you think about the u.s. presidential debate. there are still more to come and we'll get to some of your comments later this the show. now, one of the other big stories today, the european central bank meets in slovenia, expected to hold back on any action as it waits for spain to decide ifle it will finally ask for a bailout. silvia wadhwa is reporting for us from the outskirts of the slovenia capital. we obviously know the ecb travels around to these events, but where are you exactly
on it. jared bernstein, former advisor to vice president joe biden is with us. mr. bernstein, always nice to see you. >> thank you. >> let's talk first about the most recent story we talked about, and that is the idea that the administration is effectively giving a pass on a law to companies that might otherwise be required to give 60 days of notice that layoffs were impending. senator mccain calls it a blatant violation of the law. do you agree? >> no, i disagree. by the way, i'm not going to say there is not some politics in here. of course, there is. but i thought eamon javers gave a very good and complete explanation of what's going on here, and certainly senator mccain amped up the politics. facts are, that absent a certainty that layoffs are coming, there is no requirement to send out warn act notices. and by the way -- most people -- and i would argue the markets -- believe that the fiscal cliff issues will be resolved. now, that's not a sure thing. but i would argue that that is the way of most people's perspective on this. >> but it's not merely a waiver on the idea of notic
-- >> the ones buried in the last four years? >> i think joe biden really does connect with average voters in a way most politicians don't. and i think it will be tough. >> tony, you and the steelers, man. anything happens to them, and i got to hear from you. >> i have not had a chance on air to congratulate you with the reds. amazing season. >> thank you. they're 5:1 odds. i think the nationalses are slightly above that. but i checked the game is saturday 8:38. i'm so excited because last time i got to the playoffs, remember what happened? they got no hit. i'm like watching it, waiting for a hit. i waited and waited and there never was one. anyway, gentlemen -- go ahead. >> what's that, football? >> listen to you. >> i know you'll have chuck todd on later today, but on this question, if you look at like some of the expectations from the wall street journal poll, on the feelings about the economy and the jobs numbers, what we're seeing in that poll, and i'd love to get chuck's thoughts on this, is a break down in the way republicans and democrats think about the economy. where you see it a
